This is very true. I find this attitude very often on the internet. About a year ago, in the midst of the internet deciding that Idris Alba should be the next James Bond, no ifs, ands, or buts (never mind that Daniel still hasn't even officially given up the role yet), Bond author Anthony Horowitz gave an interview where after he praised the black voice actor who did the audiobook for Trigger Mortis, he gave the opinion that Idris Alba was too "street" for Bond, and suggested other actors of color that he thought could be good. Most people fixated on the "he thinks Alba shouldn't be Bond!" part without looking at the context of his comments, and labeled Horowitz a racist.
